I have a CUCM 7.0.1 server at my office.  Most of my users have the cisco ip communicator installed on their windows laptops which works just fine.  I can't get it to work on a Mac though.  I have a couple users who just got a Mac.  Is there an IP communicator version that will support a Mac?  Thanks

You might give X-lite a try.  It works pretty well on a MAC and I know we have some clients that use it and seem happy.

Is there anything I have to configure on the Call Manager side for this to work?  Thanks.

Nothing really that special.  User setup and then just configs on the client side.  Here are the walk through and setup guides that my friend sent me.

If you are also using Cisco Presence, the Unified Personal Communicator Client works on MAC and it has a softphone component to it..

Highfive + Dolby Voice = No More Audio Complaints!

Poor audio quality is one of the top reasons people don’t use video conferencing. Get the crispest, clearest audio powered by Dolby Voice in every meeting. Highfive and Dolby Voice deliver the best video conferencing and audio experience for every meeting and every room.

FYI ... We have had problems with CUPC but only on Snow Leopard.  Seems that we could never dial after a call was placed.  Such as press #1 for sales Press #2 for blah.  didn't seem to work right.  TAC , I guess, can provide a beta fix but nothing official yet.

I dont have Cisco Presence.  If I would purchase cisco presence, it this just a module that I would install on my call manger, or is this a separate server?
